I "rode the Texas Tour" with Deputy U.S. Marshal Hilton E. Schorre back in 1970 and 1971. We would leave Corpus Christi head to Brownsville, Texas the travel to El Paso. From there we would travel on to Texarkana then back to San Antonio and finally back to Corpus Christi. Hilton was a good man and even today he is stilled missed
